Creamy Pineapple Parfaits
Here’s the story behind these parfaits. I have been on a fruit kick lately. It’s getting warm and there is nothing like a cold piece of fruit to cool you down.
I usually make smoothies, but I needed a dessert. Something sweet, a little thick with a little crunch.
Now don’t get me wrong. I love cheesecake and could eat cheesecake every day! Whose with me?
But of course, cheesecake isn’t very healthy lol and I needed something that I could eat at least every other week. I stumbled upon this yogurt when I was away for a work trip a few years ago and fell in love.
Since I started eating it, I have been eating it plain most of the time but needed to switch things up.
This is not a sponsored post, I am just simply sharing something I love. You can easily use your own favorite Greek yogurt and they will still turn out great; however, I do recommend using Greek yogurt because of the texture.
Greek yogurt is so much thicker than regular yogurt, which makes it great for this type of recipe.
Greek yogurt is not sweet whatsoever, so we are adding sugar to this recipe. We also used Cool Whip to lighten up the Greek Yogurt.
We used canned pineapples for this recipe, but you could use a can of crushed pineapples!
How do you like your parfaits? Somewhat cold? Super cold?!
I like my parfaits super cold so after I put the mixture together (without the granola) I refrigerated it for an hour.
This is optional but definitely makes them taste better. Be sure to add your granola to your parfait right before serving so that it doesn’t get soggy.
No fancy granola was used for this recipe. My favorite granola is the store brand from Kroger. It’s an oat and honey granola with slivers of almonds. It’s really tasty, but not overly sweet.
